Science visits

Photographs from our annual Yr9 Castlerock Science visit  and Yr8 Nesswoods science trip can now be viewed on the school gallery.

Yr9 travelled by train to Castlerock and considered a range of projects including train speeds, banded snail populations, convection currents in land and sea breezes and marram grass growth. Yr8 had fun sampling the invertebrates, considered the soil pH and discovered if moss growth on tree trunks can give directions?! Pupils enjoyed poetry with the ‘environment theme’  over lunchtime as they  ate their planned ‘healthy’ packed lunch- lots of connected learning in evidence!
